Questions

General

No! Meck Institute classes are open to anyone and everyone to attend. Some classes are age-specific (noted in the class description); otherwise, there are no restrictions. In fact, we encourage you to invite friends, family, coworkers, etc. to attend with you.

Most classes are completely FREE. Only a handful of classes require a small fee to cover material costs.

Most of our classes will have an accompanying workbook, which will be provided for you. You’ll have the option when you register to have yours emailed to you as a PDF, shipped to you, or you can pick it up at Meck’s campus in Charlotte.

Both. We offer in-person, live streamed, online and on-demand classes. The format of each class is indicated in the class description. Here’s an easy breakdown:

  • In person classes take place live in a physical classroom at Mecklenburg Community Church.
  • Live stream classes also take place live in a physical classroom at Meck, but you can choose to attend virtually.
  • Online classes are live but exclusively online, with the teacher joining you in the virtual classroom.
  • On demand classes are pre-recorded and available for you to access at any time.

No worries! Life happens, and we get that. Simply email meckinstitute@mecklenburg.org to let us know you cannot make it.

We sure do! We have opportunities for teachers, class moderators, content developers, administrative support, and more. Email meckinstitue@mecklenburg.org to find out more.

Simply shoot us an email at meckinstitute@mecklenburg.org, and we’ll get back to you promptly.

When in-person classes feature a live stream viewing option, the teacher will be in a physical classroom with in-person students, but you can opt to participate in class virtually. You’ll be able to ask questions and take part in group discussions, but from the comfort of your home (or wherever you are).

Most likely, the class you’re interested in was already offered in the semester or has yet to be scheduled. But fill out our class interest form HERE to be notified when registration becomes available. You can suggest new class ideas here, too.

In Person Classes

Sometimes. If you attend an in-person class on a Sunday, you can utilize MecKidz for your children while you’re in class. For weekday classes, we offer childcare for most of our parenting classes. 

Online Classes

Most classes are live unless designated as “on-demand.” We believe that learning takes place best within community, and live classes provide a great atmosphere for meeting new people and forming meaningful relationships. Additionally, you’ll be able to chat with the instructor and receive feedback in real time. If you’re not comfortable attending live, or if your schedule doesn’t afford you that option, you can always register and wait until the class recording is available a few days after the live class takes place.

While we encourage everyone to have their camera turned on during class, it’s not mandatory in our adult classes. We do, however, insist on having cameras on for our children’s classes as an additional security measure. But don’t let the camera be a deterrent to your participation. The atmosphere of our online classes is casual, so feel free to wear your pajamas, eat dinner while participating, and even have your cat join you for class as well.

Not unless you want to. We utilize Zoom for our online classes, and you can attend a class through your web browser without downloading any additional software. However, to access the full functionality of Zoom, we encourage you to download the desktop app on your computer or the Zoom app on your phone. Once you click on the classroom link (which you’ll receive via email), you’ll be prompted to download Zoom if you haven’t already. If you don’t wish to, simply select “ignore”, and you’ll be able to access the meeting through your web browser.

You sure can! A few days after class, you’ll receive an email with the class recording. You’ll be able to watch it as many times as you’d like for three months.
